    Apparently Truecrypt full-disk encryption doesn't work on Windows 8.1. Is there any free software that allows full-disk encryption on Windows 8.1? I tried Diskcryptor, and apparently it doesn't work on windows 8.1. What encryption software allows hard drive encryption on windows 8.1? Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Try the native one, BitLocker.

    I don't have Bitlocker installed on my computer.

    Try VeraCrypt, a fork from TC which supposedly solves TC issues but is not compatible with it. Or R-Crypto, from www.r-tt.com, free for personal use.

    Strange. I use Diskcryptor on all Win8.1x machines. Who said it doesn't work on 8.1?

    Diskcryptor works well. Doesn't support hidden disk/partition but the problem is that there hasn't been any audit on it.
